CAPTURED: ‘Little Rob’ arrested after wandering into law enforcement stakeout in Tri-Cities

TRI-CITIES —  MARCH 23, 2018

Tri-Cities Crime Stoppers says Department of Corrections officers and the Fugitive Task Force arrested Roberto Gomez aka ‘Little Rob’ after they spotted him while on a stakeout at a local motel for another fugitive.

“Little Rob” apparently walked toward one of the surveillance vehicles and then realized he made  mistake and started running while tossing heroin and meth behind the shrubs.  He was taken into custody and booked into the Benton County jail on his Department of Corrections warrant as well as  drug charges.

The U.S. Marshals and Department of Corrections officers in the Tri-Cities are on the hunt for “Little Rob.” That’s Roberto Gomez’s street name.

He’s a high-violent gang member who’s breaking probation in Benton County for robbery and possession of meth convictions.

He has a massive rap sheet and tons of tattoos all over his body.

He’s 33 years old, 5’5” and weighs 175 pounds.

DOC officers think he’s getting help to hide, so they’re hoping an anonymous Crime Stoppers tip will help flush him out, into the open.
